Posted on 08/17/2012 3:31:35 PM PDT by NormsRevenge
Former Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee will attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in September, WPRI reports.
Chafee is now the independent governor of liberal Rhode Island, and has been drifting away from the Republican Party since at least 2006, when he lost his re-election bid for the Senate. (In 2004, he withdrew his support for President George W. Bush's re-election.) Chafee backed President Barack Obama's 2008 run, and is a co-chair for his campaign.

>> Is the Romney Stericycle story true or not?
NOT TRUE — at least not the way you, DU, HuffingtonPost, Mother Jones, and Salon peddle it.
...and he hates puppies! (/s)
Yeah, I’m sure it’s wrong in the fever swamps of your tiny RDS mind.
In the REAL world where I live, though — here among people who can observe, think, and count — it’s not only right, but obvious.
No problem - we can smell the stench across the border from RI...
This is why we should purge all the rinos from the republican party. John Chafee was a rino. Jodi Rell was a rino. When John Chafee died, Rell appointed his son to the seat. He’s now speaking at the democrat convention. Because all moderate republicans are democrats.

A really well done HTML post, properly set off in paragraphs, showing that you know how to use italic and bold tags. And even a PICTURE! (Irrelevant though it is.) I’d give you a B+ for technical skills and appearance.
Contentwise, it’s a little lacking.
We can strip off the unnecessary crap and (besides the ad hominem) we’re left with really only a short sentence that means anything at all:
“That...proposition of yours has been refuted so often here on FreeRepublic...”
Well, no, actually it hasn’t. Not for those of us who don’t live in your fevered mind, anyhoo.
While we’re on the subject of handing out assignments and educating ourselves, here’s one for you, sport. Read the following link on “Logical Fallacies”, and report back which fallacy your statement represents, m’kay?
Hint: it’s not “Argumentum Ad Hominem”, although all the REST of your drivel is certainly that.
Good luck, Nervous Tick! May you find whatever it is you are seeking!
OK, so I go into the voting booth and don't vote for Romney, so Obama gets 1 vote.
The guy behind me, who hasn't bathed for a couple of weeks, obviously a Liberal, is next. He doesn't vote for Romney either, so that's ANOTHER vote for Obama.
Now Obama has a total of 2 votes.
THEN, he actually votes for Obama!
Now Obama has a total of 3 votes?
Now I'm beginning to understand how Obama got 54% of the votes in 08.
>> Now I’m beginning to understand how Obama got 54% of the votes in 08.
After reading your loopy explanation, so am I.
Rinos shed their skin just like any other cold-blooded reptile.

Thanks for the well wishes! I’m seeking an end to a four-year nightmare named Obama. I am confident that I’ll find it in November, helped along by lots and lots of folks who love America and gather together behind the (R) candidate and vote the blue-lipped Kenyan bastard out.
I wish you’d join us but it looks like you have other plans that day.
‘A vote for neither is a vote for Obama’ by Nervous tick.
Since you don’t like the logical extension of that statement, offer your own.
Link the dink defines RINO’S.
There are definite similarities. Chafee and Romney both come from establishment Republican dynasties whose constituents have been disappearing. They both had to find a way to adapt if they wanted to keep their family political businesses alive.
Romney tried to pull the “I can be as liberal as any Democrat” routine a few years before Chafee did, and he found out it was not a winning strategy, losing office just like Chafee would later. Romney didn’t go independent, or toy around with switching parties like Chafee though. Instead, he decided to try to jump to the national level of Republican politics, where he didn’t need to worry about a shrinking pool of Republican voters.
Romney has arguably picked the more successful strategy, but I don’t doubt that he would be right there beside Chafee at the Democrat convention, if he had thought that was the more politically expedient move.
Wonder when the “Maine wonder twins” (Snowe and Collins) will be joining?
If he’s prominent for anything, it’s because he’s well known for being universally hated by most people in the Republican party. It’s about as sensible as calling Martin Luther a prominent Catholic clergyman.
It’s about time the deceiptful Democrat joined his party and stopped his corrupting and scaming the political process.
